If you are facing redundancy, it is important to understand your legal rights and options. Our experienced employment law solicitors can provide you with the advice and support you need to navigate this challenging time.
Redundancy is a form of dismissal that can occur when an employer needs to reduce their workforce. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including economic downturns, business restructuring, or changes in technology. Employers have a legal obligation to follow a fair and transparent process when making employees redundant.
If you are facing redundancy, your employer must follow a fair and objective selection process based on specific criteria, such as performance, skills, and length of service. Your employer must also consult with you and any relevant trade union or employee representatives before making a final decision.
As an employee facing redundancy, you have certain legal rights. These include the right to be consulted about the redundancy process, the right to a fair selection process, and the right to be offered suitable alternative employment if available.
If your employer fails to follow a fair and transparent redundancy process or does not offer suitable alternative employment, you may have grounds for a claim of unfair dismissal or discrimination. Our team of experienced employment law solicitors can help you understand your rights and options and guide you through the process of making a claim.
